Marvin H. Underwood III, 65

February 15, 2021

Marvin H. Underwood III, 65, of Lititz, passed away on February 15, 2021 at Lancaster General Hospital. Born in Hanover, he was the son of the late Marvin H. Jr. and Doris (Ruby) Underwood. He was the dedicated husband of Diane Underwood for more than 42 years, until her passing in 2017.

Marvin was an outdoorsman. He enjoyed being in the woods and loved being on the water. His passion was boating on the Chesapeake, where he would spend every weekend, six months out of the year. His goal in retirement was to move closer to the water to be on his boat more. He also hunted small game, bears, pheasant, and deer to spend as much time outdoors as possible. He passed along his love of the outdoors to his family, who will continue his yearly trout fishing trip to the mountains. He will also be remembered as a patron at the Brunnerville Hotel for more than 35 years.

He is survived by his children: Michelle Shoultz, wife of John, and Michael Underwood, all of Lititz, grandchildren: Brett and Maegan, great-granddaughter, Cassidy and his brother, John Underwood of Reading. He was preceded in passing by his parents, wife and sisters: Mary Zeimer and Bobbi Ann Kindt.

A Celebration of Marvin’s life will be held at a later date. Memorial contributions in his name may be made to Hospice & Community Care.

I’m so sorry to hear of his passing, but he will now be with Diane who was my neighbor and good friend growing up.  I met mike through her and watched their love grow til I lost track of them after they moved.

So many years of memories to look back on and remember. Sending our prayers for comfort and healing.
If Tomorrow Starts Without Me
If tomorrow starts without me, and I’m not here to see,If the sun should rise you find your eyes all filled with tears for me;I wish so much you wouldn’t cry the way you did today,While thinking of the many things we didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love youAnd each time that you think of me, I know you’ll miss me too.But when tomorrow starts without me please try to understand,That an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand.He said my place was ready, in heaven far aboveAnd that I’d have to leave behind all those I dearly love. 
But as I turned and walked away a tear fell from my eye.For all my life I’d always thought, I didn’t want to die.I had so much to live for, so much left yet to do.It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.I thought of all the yesterdays the good ones and the bad.
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.If I could relive yesterday, just even for a while,I’d say goodbye and kiss you and maybe see you smile.But then I fully realized that this could never be,For emptiness and memories would take the place of me.
When I thought of worldly things I might miss come tomorrowI thought of you and when I did my heart was filled with sorrow.When I walked through heavens gates I felt so much at home.God looked down and smiled at me from his great golden throneHe said, “This is eternity and all I’ve promised you”
Today your life on earth has passed but here life starts anew.I promise no tomorrow, but today will always lastAnd since each day is the same there’s no longing for the past.You have been so faithful so trusting and so true.Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn’t do.
You have been forgiven and now at last you’re free.So won’t you come and take my hand and share my life with me?So when tomorrow starts without me don’t think we’re far apart,For every time you think of me, I’m right here in your heart.

My condolences to the family. I new Marvin from working with him at Pine Hill Trailers. He always treated me with  honesty  and respect. I suspect this was the way he treated everyone who got the opportunity to know him. I will miss him and some of the good conversation we had when I was at Pine Hill.

So heart broken to hear of Marvin’s passing. I worked with him at ReTech almost 20 years ago and he was the best coworker and friend you could ask for. Loved his family and was so proud of his grandchildren. Prayers for the family.
